A Baby Shower

When it comes to life’s biggest events, you don’t get much bigger than the birth of a baby. And so it follows that the shower leading up to this occasion should be appropriately meaningful. Happily, this does not require slaving over a fantastically elaborate spread, which could cost you a bomb nowadays.
To truly honour these new beginnings and elicit “oohs and aahs” from your guests, all you need is a little creative vision and a few personal touches.

Whether you’re looking for creative, non-cheesy shower baby shower games or simple ways to dress up your sweets, there’s a unique idea to suit any party style. I get inspired with all the tips and tricks that I stalked quite a lot from Pinterest.
So here’s my little compilation of some “Tips and Tricks to Make Your Baby Shower Shine!”
Happy Showers!

1. Tea Time or Breakfast Baby Shower
It’s quite a norm for baby showers to be afternoon affairs, but you could throw a breakfast baby shower for a friend instead! As an early morning shower is an unexpected idea and a great way to start the day.

You could even plan a “HOME BABY SHOWER” instead of throwing it at fancy restaurants or cafes with tea, coffee and some homemade savouries plus desserts!

2. Decorate Your Desserts
To create clever sweets like these cupcakes, you could top plain desserts / food with themed flags. Add a few props to the display to make it even more eye-catching.

3. Creative Onesie / Romper Clothesline
Go for unique, practical shower decor by setting up a onesie clothesline. You can even make your own cut-out onesies to create a banner.
However by using real rompers/ onesies, you could double as a gift post party!

4. Popcorn Bar
Simple to set up and easy for guests to navigate, a popcorn bar is a great grab-and-go snack for friends to enjoy throughout the shower or as a favour. I’ve been wanting to do a popcorn bar! Perhaps during next party haha.

5. Bib-Decorating Contest
Let guests flex their creativity by putting together a bib-decorating contest. Even better? The parents-to-be will have plenty of options once the baby arrives!

10. Set a Theme
Be it a Theme Colour or Character, planning showers with a theme is much easier.
You could also adapt these baby themes for their fullmoon or birthday parties too. Here’s some simple reference that we have done.
